Super Saturday 2013

Saturday 9th of March 2013

Warming up to the big event where I had four rides.

In the first - Al Maktoum Challenge - I rode Kerim to finish in 7th. Not a bad run at all, considering she is still a maiden.

In race 3 - the Meydan Sprint - I rode Vocational but got a bit of stick after dropping my stick! The boys said I needed an elastic band around my wrist to hold it securely like the Pony Club riders! It didn't go down too well!

In race 6 - Burj Nahaar - I rode Nawwaar unplace, and in the last - Jebel Hatta - I rode Zain Shamardal who finished in last place. 

Surely I've got to have a winner soon?!
